about

Emma Dean Brisbane, Australia

Heralded for her captivating vocals by the New York Post, singer-songwriter Emma Dean has returned to her stomping ground in Brisbane with a sensuous, electric new sound. Her upcoming single “Feed It” is an intimate anthem: Dean layers trademark heart-opening lyrics with addictive hooks. Her voice, mellifluous but powerful, is incandescent in performance — an uncanny, moving life-force. ... more

Track Name: 3 Meals
How could it be I'm running out of time sir?
I'm only 22 sir, I'm only 22
How could it be I feel old now?
But I've so much to learn now
I only cook three meals now I only cook three meals...

How could it be I want to change my style now?
I look at you and cry now
‘Cos that was my idea now but no one got to see it
So chuck it out chuck it out
Chuck it chuck it ch-u-u-u-uck it out...oh oh

CHORUS:
So I don't know my way, I don't know my way
But tell me that it's ok where…where do I belong?
Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can learn to be strong?

How could it be I'm running out of steam sir?
You do know what I mean sir?
I'm getting pretty sick now of coughing up these thoughts
And I hate to be annoying, I hate to be annoying
But if you could just make it stop now oh...

CHORUS:
So I don't know my way, I don't know my way
But tell me that it's ok where...where do I belong?
Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can… oh…
I’ve got to find a way, I’ve got to find my way
So tell me that its okay where…where do I belong
Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can learn to be strong?

So you might see me following the footsteps that turn in to a slow jog
But I can't keep up - they turn in to a fast paced run
What level do you speak of my dear
as you motion higher with your hands?
Am I underneath your ears…Or is that your neck…Or is that your chest?

CHORUS:
Oh I've got to find my way, I need to find a way
But tell me that it's ok where...where do I belong?
Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can… oh…
I’ve got to find a way, I’ve got to find my way
So tell me that its okay where…where do I belong
Is it in your arms or is it somewhere… I can learn to be strong?
Track Name: Chai Tea
When something just comes and opens the door
Could this be our chance to fly to the stars?
Letting go seems easy, moving on seems strange
And finding out that one of us has changed

When there's no more chai tea for me
No more chai tea for me....

Yesterday I began to paint
The face of me and the words I sent to you the other day

Now there's no more chai tea for me
No more chai tea for me....

Is this forever or forever just for now?
I hope it's the latter but I don't know somehow
Oh well just tell me one thing before I go
Just tell me you don't love me, so then I know...

That there's no more chai tea for me
No more chai tea for me...
Track Name: Bicycle
I am feeling like a re-enactment is occurring
I am feeling like I've mucked it all up yet again
If I could ride a bike I'd ride away into the sunset
I know you know what that feels like
I know you know what that feels like...

CHORUS:
If you got something you want to tell me darlin’
Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday
Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take
On my bicycle whoa oh...

I am feeling like my voice is stuck down in my throat
I am feeling like a stranger inside my own skin
If I could ride a bike I'd ride away and visit Norway
I know you know what that feels like
I know you know what that feels like...

CHORUS:
If you got something you want to tell me darlin’
Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday
Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take
On my bicycle whoa oh...

Always going away
Why can't I come with you one of these days?
Oh please don't say that if we keep going on like this
We may not get through…may not get through
May not get through...through…through

CHORUS:
If you got something you want to tell me darlin’
Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday
Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take
On my bicycle whoa oh...
Track Name: Too Fat For Ballet
Am I in over my head?
Some days I wake up and wish I was a nurse or a lawyer instead
But I've worked at this since I was three
Since when my teacher told me I was too fat to do ballet

So listen up can't you see
I'm more than those people who you see and who have said that they love me
I've got so much I want to say
But if you don't hear me - I want to do floristry at TAFE...floristry at TAFE...

Where you going? no one's showing up today
I guess it's just the weather keeping them inside
Maybe you could bring a friend or two to fill it up
And I will buy them a drink with my 15 dollars pay

Where you going no one's showing up today
I guess it's just the weather keeping them inside
But I would like to thank you all for coming 'cos there's so few of you
I'll find it easy to socialise...

Am I in over my head?
Some days I wake up and wish I was a nurse or a lawyer instead
But I've worked at this since I was three
Since when my teacher told me I was too fat to do ballet
Track Name: Chew Love
It's times like these that I thank God that I can write a song
To overcome this troubled mind while it's too busy singing along
I wish I could just breathe you out the way I breathed you in
But I love you…I love you…

CHORUS:
Could this be chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes?
chew-a-chew-a-love?

It's times like these that make me down so down I cannot see
But I refuse to write a song that's hateful and so angry
I know I was upset but you know you are the best person that I have… ever met
That why… I love you

CHORUS:
Could this be chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes?
chew-a-chew-a-love?

Please say that you love me still the way
That you said you did the other day
I can't help but think this is such a waste...

[Instrumental]

I love you...I love you

CHORUS:
Could this be… chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes?
chew-a-chew-a-love?

Chew Love… Chew Love etc.
Track Name: Good Song
So you say you go down to the village
To the bank then you'll fly on a plane
Now I'm counting down the seconds
Till we'll be together again

Did I ever say you write a good song?
Did I ever say you write a good song?

CHORUS
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now you write a good song...
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now come on and sing along...

Jon Paul got it right, it's good on paper
But everyone they must stand alone
Don't want you drinking to pass the time now
But we can send dirty texts on the phone

Did I ever say you write a good song?
Did I ever say you write a good song?

CHORUS
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now you write a good song...
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now come on and sing along...

You write a good song
You write a good song

[Instrumental]

CHORUS
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now you write a good song...
Na Now Now Now Na Now Now
Na Now Now come on and sing along...
Track Name: Sunday
Sunday is looking like a good day for us
Friday wasn't looking so damn crash hot
We'll pack it up and we'll go away
Waiting for the day when we can just stop.
Because we can. Because we can.

Sunday is looking like a good day for us
I'll be playing all my new songs for a new friend of mine
You know I may be moving out with her
And you won't be around the corner any more
I'll pack it up and I'll go away
Waiting for the day when we can just stop.
Because we can. Because we can.

Save this moment, don't be affraid
Cos love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need
Love this moment till your dying day
Cos love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need

Sunday is looking like a good day for us
I'll wait until you've taken back your trailer truck
We'll pack it up and we'll go away
Waiting for the day the day that we can just stop...
